HEALTH CARE

As a college we aim to bring redemption, healing and development to communities, families and individuals through this effort. We believe that we are called to engage and train people for the health care field and encourage them to see their specialities with a biblical world view. We are committed in ministry to the marginalised. In Isaiah 61 Jesus brought good news to the poor, freedom to captives and healing to the sick. His ministry was one of comfort and restoration. Combining healthcare and the sharing of the Gospel, we see miracles, individuals restored and communities strengthened. We are committed to study the scripture for deeper revelation, to research and find innovative ways to meet need and reflect a Christ-like attitude toward the sick. We are dedicated to train healthcare missionaries to be competent in skill and character.

The UofN uses two types of credits, FLW (full learning weeks) and LCU (learning component units).

FLW credits are used with traditional residential courses and one of these credits requires a minimum of 50 hours of documented learning activities; these include our normal lectures, small groups, one-on-ones, etc.; and some of these activities are nonformal, in addition to the classroom activities and study assignments.

LCU credits are used for part-time programs like evening courses, intensive seminars, distance learning and other non-residential courses. Each LCU credit requires 25 hours of focused learning activities which can be spread over a period of time.
